[unpaid/sample] I’ve found out the actual launch date for these and the new lip fogs and blush palette that I featured last week – October 1st at Selfridges with Harrods following on 15th. So, now we know.
There are two new Designing Eye Colour Palettes – above is 136 KOIAMI in soft, muted hues of nude, pink and brown. It’s subtle and very wearable if you get the urge for a neutral-ish lid and the pink is there to spice things up a bit. I love a pink (or red) lid – so unexpected and works for all tones with the right mascara and liner to keep it one step away from the actual eye. You could go all Tilda Swinton and use pink to emphasise a bare eye but you’d be braver than me!
In this picture, it’s 135 HIKARETSUTSUMI. It’s a near perfect representation of autumn in an eye palette – a kind of paprika, spicy orange with a shimmery pink (think how well orange and pink go together on accessories and clothes), a light purple and a deep aubergene shade. The best way to look at this palette is as two duos – the top two and the bottom two although if you are feeling adventurous then it’s all to play for – mix them up as you like! They’re £46 each.
Bottom is KOIAMI and top is HIKARETSUTSUMI.

Are you going to Swatch these palettes?
Oh my gosh – thank you – I completely forgot to put the swatch pictures in the post – doing it right now!
Many thanks!! Are you going to sell these palettes?
No, this is a review site not a store 🙂
Both pallets look lovely, but so expensive plus shipping to Canada.
Just listened to your podcast, and it was great to hear your voice. At first I thought you started a podcast, cause I would listen the hell out of it!
